    OK here are the choices: BFG Muds, Goodyear MT/R's, Super Swamper Radials, or Bridgestone Dueler M/T's....which ones would get the most miles? I would be driving to school and home, then wheelin about every weekend...

    I have researched these all alot and all rate very well for wear as a mud tire. The swampers as mentioned will always look meaner! Also what kind of terrain do you wheel?

    I'd say the Goodyears will get better mileage. A wheeling buddy of mine runs Goodyear military tread mud tires and sees about 50k with a mixture of highway and offroad. He used to run Swampers but highway driving ate them up on his truck, he got about 20k miles before they were slick.

    BFG's wear the best PERIOD! I got a good 30k on a set and still 50% tread on them. Another point is if you buy the BFG's at Costco or NTB you can get road hazard.

    Sears will give you the road hazard too and they price them pretty good.

    BFG's wear better than swampers, but I'm not sure how the MTR's stack up. I had a set of Dueler AT's, and I hated those things, so personally, just stay away from bridgestone and go with one of the aforementioned muds...

    I would say Goodyear MTRs for all around use. I had them on my Jimmy, and now my Burb and I love them. Them last pretty long, do alot better in mud than the BFGs and look alot meaner than the BFGs. I have never had any luck in the mud with BFG MTs.
